The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938)

Great English films can’t be measured scientifically because greatness is extremely subjective. The artistic greatness of films can never be rated or quantified, although critics, reviewers, and fans still make ten best lists, hundred best lists, all-time greatest lists, favorites lists, and awards lists.

Arguably, there is reasonable consensus by most film historians, critics and reviewers that these selections are among cinema’s most critically-acclaimed, significant “must-see” films (of predominantly Hollywood – American production). These 100 choices were limited to English-language, theatrically-distributed, narrative feature films. [That means foreign-language films, documentaries, TV movies and mini-series, and short films were not considered.] Emphasis in these selections is purposely directed toward earlier, more classic Hollywood/American films (and other English – language films) than more recent films, although some recent films (and British films) are included.
